Flaming Balls? Bad press? Check out the top 5 discussion on theLoop! - PPA Today

Flaming Balls? Bad press? Check out the top 5 discussion on theLoop!

theLoop, PPA's exclusive social network for professional photographers, has been aflutter with the release of the new app for iPhone and Android devices! Now you can stay connected on-the-go with your pro photographer community, asking (and answering) questions, share ideas and even submit images for a peer critique! theLoop is only available to PPA members, so don't worry about asking those tough questions you wouldn't want your clients to see! 

For those of you who are new to theLoop, or those who haven't had a chance to check-in lately, there are some great discussion threads going for July. Here are 5 of our favorites:

1. PPA Members: How should I handle this with my client?
Getting stuck in the middle of a client's family strife? Check out how your fellow photographers navigate the muddy waters of family relations, threatened blackmail and bad press.
2. Marketing: FB Likes
If you're a newbie to Facebook, or just frustrated with a lack of likes and engagement, this thread is for you! See how your peers find their clients, increase their fan base and stay connected. We bet you'll "like" it!
3. PPA Members: Flaming Balls
Unfortunately, this one isn't nearly as inappropriate as you might think, but if you're a sports photographer, you might be interested in lighting your client's sporting equipment (i.e. balls) on fire. Debate the pros and cons of rubber cement, gelatinized fuel and more options to set your images apart!
4. PPA Members: What's the next big investment in your business?
Whether you've been in business for a month, a year or a decade, you're always looking to invest in your future. Join this thread to see where others are putting their resources for their next great move!
5. Post-Capture: Thoughts on editing services
What are your thoughts on getting away from the computer and spending more time behind the camera, doing what you love? Outsourcing your editing can be a touchy subject--weigh in with your opinions here!

So there's just a few of July's most-talked about discussions. If you don't see one that applies to your needs or interest, then dive in and find the right community or discussion for you! Or be a leader and start a new one!
